Parking charges will return on Monday 15 June
However, NHS staff and care workers will continue to benefit from free parking for the foreseeable future. If you work for the NHS you must show proof that you're eligible in your windscreen. This can be:
- a photocopy of your work pass with sensitive information removed
- health, care and volunteer workers parking pass (also known as a universal government parking pass): get this from your healthcare employer or the Royal Voluntary Service
- letter of evidence from your employer
These are the only groups exempt from payment and all others must adhere to the payment terms and time restrictions
Park and ride is the easiest way to get into Oxford by car. There are five park and ride sites located around Oxford's ring road, with regular bus services to the city centre, and - from some car parks - to the hospitals.
It is easy to use. You simply park your car and use a bus to get to your destination. Please note that separate charges apply for both the car park and bus journey.
